McKinley Elementary School awarded with $1,923 from ‘Make Change Happen’ contest; North Shore Bank further supports effort with fundraiser and matched donation


BROOKFIELD, Wis. – North Shore Bank today announced that it will continue fundraising support for its ‘Make Change Happen’ contest winner, McKinley Elementary School, as they attempt to raise funds for an upcoming class trip.

North Shore Bank will match the donations up to 500 dollars.

Kenosha Make Change Happen Check PresentationLast year, North Shore Bank held their “Make Change Happen” video contest to help support school initiatives in the community. As part of the bank’s 95th anniversary celebration, North Shore Bank awarded four schools with $1,923 each, matching the year the bank first opened its doors. McKinley Elementary School was chosen as the winner for the South region, with funds supporting their fifth-grade camping field trip. After a successful check presentation, North Shore Bank is continuing the support for McKinley Elementary School camping trip through this coin counting fundraiser. McKinley Elementary School is also holding a ‘Penny Wars’ contest at their school to raise funds, and all change will be counted at the North Shore Bank branch. The money raised will help support funding for a three-day, two-night camping trip for families and chaperones that have financial hardship.

“We are thrilled to be continuing this relationship with McKinley Elementary School, one of our Make Change Happen contest winners,” said Julie Goebel, Kenosha area branch manager. “We encourage the community to drop off their loose change at any of our Kenosha locations so that we may continue to support the students and their fundraising goals.”

The coin collection at North Shore Bank Kenosha locations is held through Feb. 28.
